A season of variety

With a new school year comes a new theatre season, and four new Missouri Western productions. Last year, Missouri Western put on their Season of Laughs. With productions like “The Drowsy Chaperone” and “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” students were encouraged to sit back, relax and laugh a little. Though this season technically doesn’t have an official title as of yet, Tee Quillin, the assistant professor of theatre and cinema, has a very special name for the productions this year. “Though it’s not an official name by any means, to me, this is a season of change.” Indeed there are quite a few changes to this year. Dallas Henry, assistant professor of theatre and cinema, is excited that the productions this season span across multiple genres. “I’m excited about the variety,” Henry said. “Overall it should be a very exciting season! I’m also excited that we’re doing a classic work such as Steinbeck.” Moreover, Quillin is excited for the production of “Three Days of Rain,” mainly because he and Henry will not be directing it. “One of the things that I’m most proud of is that we have a student, Christian Allison, directing ‘Three Days of Rain.’ Allison has been very involved within the department, and won a contest to direct a play this season. “I was excited that I was getting the opportunity, and it was not really overwhelming,” Allison said. Allison is already assuming his role as director of an upcoming play; making sure to keep an open mind when it comes to multiple aspects of the production, including whom he is going to cast. “At any moment, anyone can show up and really blow your mind in how they interpret a character or how they just perform,” Allison said. Though slightly nervous, Allison is ready to start the season along with his fellow directors. Quillin is also looking forward to working with some new people. “We have a new music director working on both musicals, so I’m really excited to be able to work with him,” Quillin said. Overall, Quillin believes this to be a very special season. With different directors and more variety, he’s hoping for a memorable season. “The entire season is fantastic; they’re all such wonderful pieces,” Quillin said.
